Already, 3/28 yeilds w/o a net honors for Looks Like Rain, 3/29 Bird Song (So Many Roads) and Eyes (w/o a net) and wildest second set imaginable, 3/30 w/o a net Help>Slip>Franks, and 4/1 w/o a net China>Rider and Dear Mr. fantasy. Any of these nights could be released in full.
4/2 contains powerful music, and the the band is clearly at a peak. Nonetheless, 4/2 and 4/3 are excellent documents of a band relaxing into their groove. Deep, bold, colorful, jazzy. Psychedelic. Maybe more focused and balanced than before. They clearly hint at what is to come later in the year, although, on this night, they set aside the extended flowering of improvisation and settle down into more song-oriented performances.
The setlist contains several twists and turns, including a 1st set Weight, a pre-prumz Last Time, a technically challenged Other One, and the final performance of Death Don't Have No Mercy.
Let it Grow and Foolish Heart are both excellent as well.
As for examples of the emergence of the Dead's '90 megagroove, check out July 12 (Foolish heart>Dark Star), July 19 Desolation Row and Row Jimmy, or 7/21 post drums (Miracle>Crazy>Playin'> Fantasy>Playin'>... There are far too many other examples to mention here.
Solid audience recording, with Phil taking over right from the start.

Walking the perimeter outside I saw a commotion ahead of me. People were scattering trying to get away from this one guy; frightning! I had to see what was going on. He was standing there with his arms crossed, shaking his hands! I saw an amazing display of chakra, all the colors, but many layers too. I've never heard of any thing like this; that which cannot be described.
Old man came up to me and gave me a J at the end of the night when I was sitten by myself, he had a paper sack full of them to pass out. The hospitality on such a grand scale was new to me. All you kids out there that were at these shows really got to me, really saw the world as a better place, and man, it shined. We should get out more! oh yeah finally got in the 3rd.
I would assume the reason that the previously mentioned shows are not posted anymore (they were a couple months ago) is b/c portions of them were officially released as you had mentioned in your review, and there was no aud version to remain when they pulled the SBD's.
The archive did not fail to post them, rather the GD folks most likely had the archive remove them.

Does anybody remember the wave at setbreak? Two guys a few rows down started it, and we were just sorta chucking. But by garsh if EVERY SINGLE PERSON in that place wasn't doing the wave after a couple minutes. Just as it went around 2 or 3 times and everyone was having a blast, the lights went down for set 2.
Awesome foolish,nice LLR,Last Time!!(...oh,oh...),He's Gone,-all superb. Death brought the house down-people were hugging and crying and,oh yeah, the band nailed it.TOO was intense and cosmic, and the RnR-USB's was a solid finish.
The sound of this DL captures it all. Crank it up on surround and trip back.
I love the archive and fret not, fellows, word is the Dead DL's will be back real soon!Peace!
